Reunion 2011

                                                  Destination : LINCOLN       

Our organising hosts this year were Mick and Betty Stracey

The reunion was held at The Bentley Hotel

During the week-end 20 / 21 May 2011

The formal dinner was held on the Saturday night.




Bently Priory Hotel, Lincoln


The gods shone on us again and we were blessed with fine weather for our annual gathering.The financial climate must have been taking its toll, as numbers were down a little. Sickness had also been a factor.
With the gathering of the clan on Friday afternoon, being greeted by our able hosts Mike and Betty Stracey, much ale was quaffed as everyone caught up with the gossip of the last 12 months, until it was time to prepare for the evening meal.
Saturday, shone forth and most of the party made their way into Lincoln for the day. Mike and Betty had organised special entry into the magnificent Cathedral and Castle. Great interest was taken in the special events, that just happened to be taking place that weekend.

The formal meal took place on the Saturday evening, where one and all wined and dined heartily, Mike Pond gave his annual oration, keeping everyone up to speed with the happenings throughout the the year within our membership. Unfortunately all his news was not good, Mike had had a troubled year with Eileen, who does seem to be on the road to recovery. Condolences went to Nigel (Bacon) who lost Brenda during the year it was good to see him attending and everyone wished him well.
A big thank you to Mick and Betty who not only organised the Hotel and dinners, but also did so much to help so many of us enjoy our day out in Lincoln.


Keep the OLD banner flying

Hope to see you all next year at Wokingham, all the details are on site.
